Lagos-Ibadan Expressway Construction Hits 58% Completion
The Lagos-Ibadan express way construction work has hit 58% completion level, Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, has said.
The Minister said this while inspecting infrastructural projects across the country.
According to him, the road, once completed, will ease off the traffic gridlock around the road and in turn boost economic activities.
While briefing the Minister and his team, the contractor handling the Shagamu-Ibadan axis and the Project Engineer of the Reynolds Construction Company (RCC), Mr. Noar Narkisis said the work had reached 58.27% completion.
He said the RCC is currently working to expand and reinforce the road, in addition to building concrete drainages and repairing failed bridges, stating that: “The work we are doing is the rehabilitation and widening of the existing road, drainage work and we are doing expansion work for bridges and also repairing failed bridges.”
Mr. Narkisis, who said the RCC is also doing maintenance of the existing carriageway to ensure a free flow of traffic, gave the assurance that before the end of the year, the company will complete the asphalt-laying phase of the entire 84-kilometer sector.
